More Shelby Layouts

Good morning everyone! Shelby tends to be the star in my layouts recently. Just a coincidence.

Yes Please: Jasmine and Shelby waiting for muffins. Yummy sweet treats.

I used Dear Lizzy “Here & Now” papers, Thickers for the title and hearts. Washi tape is from stash.

A Home without a Dog is just a House: I used a mix of Echo Park “DOG” mini kit (very old) and Reminisce “Unleashed” kit (very new).

I Love My Dog: I used Bazzill cardstock, Graphic 45 pattern paper, and stickers from The Paper Studio, Park Lane and PhotoPlay. Enamel dots from Freckled Fawn.

Hey Shelby! Where are you?
Shelby dropped off her purple monster in between some bricks and a box. Funny how the toy looks like its peeking around the corner.

I used Bazzill cardstock, Simon Hurley lunar paste, Tim Holtz stencil, Basic Grey chipboard alphas (green and purple), American Craft black alphas, Dylusions mist, Dear Lizzy stickers and washi tape from my stash.

TFL! 🙂

Shelby Layouts

Hello everyone! I scrapped on Monday (Memorial Day) and got 4 layouts completed. I didn’t realize that all four of them are about The Shelbster! Even though one layout has Penny in it and the another one has Jackson in it. But Shelby is front and center!

Photo Op: I used Bazzill cardstock; Authentique pattern papers and little word stickers; American Crafts Title; Sticko paw print stickers; Nellie’s Choice stamp; Jane Davenport ink; Park Lane quote and heart sticker. I also used the new WRMKs circle cutter to cut out my circle.

Layout: Happy Halloween. I used PhotoPlay papers/stickers. Washi tape is from my stash.

Journaling reads: I ordered a Hallween Bag from The Dog Bakery. It came with treats, a mini cake, cookies and a toy. Shelby was very interested sniffing the bag. She pulled out the little mummy and played with it for most of the day. She loved carrying it around.

I used the following sketch (ACOT’s Becky Fleck #278)

Layout: Trash to Treasure. I used Bo Bunny’s “Sunshine Bliss” papers and embellishments and Teresa Collins sequins.

Journaling reads: Before Rob could throw away the x-large box, Shelby used it to hold some of her “treasures”. She had a couple of sticks, acorns, and even her tennis ball in the box. 10/27/2021

We Love Icecream. I used Echo Park and Jillibean Soup papers; Echo Park heart stickers; American Crafts washi tape and MME alphas, banner and journaling block.

With the layout above, I have used up most of the Echo Park “Girl Cousins” mini kit that I pulled in May to try to “use”. I’ve got scraps left and most of the sticker sheet, but no full sheets! The banner and journaling block came from the MME “My Story” embellies that I’m trying to use up too. I’m doing pretty good with those!

TFL! 🙂

Layouts: Stay Pawsitive and Tail of the Headless Dog

Hello everyone! I have two more layouts to share with you.

Stay Pawsitive: Jackson is NOT a fan of the vet, even if its just once a year for an exam and shots.

I used Best Creation papers; 7 Papers word art stickers; Jillibean Soup cat die cut; WRMKs “warning” fussy cut from a cut apart card; Want 2 Scrap green pearls; Impression Obsession stamped title and Tsukineko ink

Tail of the Headless Dog: It was so cold this day, Penny was wearing her PJs and wrapped in a blanket. Later, she got hungry. The blanket stayed on her. January 28, 2022

I used Bo Bunny glitter paste; Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts alphas; Card Craft stickers. Washi tape, modeling paste and the paw print stencil is from my stash.

TFL! 🙂

National Scrapbooking Day Layouts

Hello everyone! May 7th was NSD — National Scrapbooking Day. A Cherry On Top hosted a fabulous crop with hostesses planning every hour for 3 days! There was a total of 50 challenges and we all had until May 16th to complete them. I was a hostess and came up with 2 challenges. My shift was Sunday (May 8th).

Fashion Challenge: #GirlSquad.

Use an article of clothing, jewelry, nail art, shoes, etc for inspiration for your layout/card.

I was inspired by the watercolor look on a white solid background with a bold black phrase.

Scrap The Everyday Moments: Document It!

Other creations from other challenges I did (including a couple of cards!)

Layouts: Sun & Fun; Taco Cat

Hello everyone! Last weekend I had a couple of hours and got two layouts completed. Granted, one of them was already 75% done as I started it the weekend before.

Layout: Sun & Fun. I used Dear Lizzy “Hear and Now” collection. Various photos of Ruby, Bear and li’l Penny in their pool, Summer 2014

Layout is based on the following sketch posted by the hostess of the Double Page challenge at A Cherry On Top:

Layout: Taco Cat. Jackson playing with a taco dog toy. He plays with it more than the dogs do. LOL. Sept 2021.

I used DCWV yellow pattern paper; Studio Calico green pattern paper (photo mats, cluster at the top); Doodlebug washi tape and enamel shapes; Anna Griffin cat face sticker; The Paper Studio sticker (“but first tacos”). Alphas are from my stash.

Layout is based on the latest Becky Fleck Sketch at A Cherry On Top. I rotated the sketch to better fit my photos.

TFL! 🙂

Layouts: Don’t Care and Doggie Days

Hello everyone! I had a semi-busy weekend last weekend but still managed to get two layouts completed.

Layout: Don’t Care. Everything is Simple Stories #Whatever and Good Vibes.

It’s based on the following sketch – ACOT’s Becky Fleck Sketch #270

This layout is also my example for my Pet Challenge this month at A Cherry On Top. The Challenge is for you to scrap your pet but you cannot use any pet-themed products. No cat/dog/etc lines. No paw prints. No animal accents.

After I did this layout, instead of immediately moving onto my next layout, I decided to start going thru my scrappy things. I have drawers and containers BUSTING at the seams. I’ve got stuff all over the place, and with all the pre-orders that will be coming in the next couple of months, where will I put it all??

So I went through 3 drawers and discovered:

  1. I have lots of MME embellies in half-used packages. Consolidate in one bag.
  2. My Echo Park drawer is FULL. Found an old mini-kit that hasn’t even been opened.
  3. I have a Dear Lizzy 12×12 paper pad AND 6×8 paper pad AND a sticker book AND Thickers. How many layouts have I created? TWO.

With that said, I decided after going thru ONE drawer, I will select ONE thing (or collection or whatever) to set aside and try to “remember” to use. So the MME embellies got set aside. Its a mixture of “My Story” and “Hello Gorgeous” ephemera, brads, chipboard, etc. All packages are at least 50% gone (or more). The Dear Lizzy collection got set aside. And I set aside the EP “Girl Cousin” collection. I will try to use that.

As I was looking thru the Dear Lizzy, I thought I could totally use it for these adorable pictures I have of Jazzy playing with her toy zombie.

The papers and stickers are Dear Lizzy and the banner is from the MME embellies I set aside. I added Doodlebug twine and a die cut doggie face from The Paper Studio. Added the title (also by The Paper Studio) and added a little charm (not sure who makes that, its been in my stash FOREVER).

The design is based on a sketch for the ACOT Sketch with a Twist. Twist was to use an animal accent.

I then got started on a 4th drawer and I realized I have an insane amount of Studio Calico! Wow! All 2014 collections and older. Some I just have a half sheet of. Why is that in a drawer and not in the scraps section? So I’ve got all of those spread out all over my table. What I will need to do now is to set aside the scraps and go thru the loose sheets. If I love it, cool. I’ll stick it in my Pattern Paper drawer. Not feeling it? Put it in a pile for someone to take (either when I get with my scrappy friends, or send it to somebody like as a RAK).

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Ready to Pawty

Hello everyone! I hardly ever scrap during the week, but I had some free time in the evening and did this two pager.

I always take a picture of the pups first thing in the morning on their Birthday. These were taken Feb 10th – Jasmine and Shelby’s 5th Birthday. Took a while to get great pics of them, and even big sister Penny wanted her picture taken!

It used quite a bit of older stash and even learned a new technique on my Cricut!

The pattern papers, large paw prints and washi tape is from Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio). The alphas are American Crafts (red) and Moxxie (green). The smaller paw print stickers are from Sticko and the chipboard pieces are MAMBI. I even finished the sticker sheet of those! The enamel stars and dot is from Freckled Fawn.

Close up of left page:

The banner is cut using my Cricut and I learned how to SLICE when I added the paw prints and the word WOOF. I really love how that turned out. The glittery brads and glittery embroidery thread is from WRMKs.

Close up of right page:

The design is based on a sketch for the Double Page Challenge over at ACOT.

Layout: Good Times

Hello everyone! I have a super cute and bright layout to share with you all.

It was for the Winter Crop 2×2 Challenge over at A Cherry On Top that was going on last week. The challenge was to use 2×2 squares. When I stumbled upon this photo of Shelby, I saw the toys and all the colors. I went straight for my 6×6 paper pads and pulled out #summer by American Crafts. Instead of mixing the squares up, I went with a rainbow theme, and used embellishments to decorate just a few squares. I used enamel dots, hearts and stars, buttons, and paper clips.

TFL! 🙂

Pup Layouts

Good afternoon everyone! I have a couple of pup layouts to share with you all.

Love at Furst Sight: Jasmine and Shelby playing quietly with toys. Easter 2020. I used Bella Blvd “Cooper” collection

It’s based on the BF Sketch 265:

Puppy Love: My babies when they were LITTLE! ❤

I used Bazzill cardstock; Queen & Co pattern paper; Inkadinkado splatters; Kaisercrafter stickers and The Paper Studio washi tape and paw print stickers.

The layout was inspired by this Fashion Mood Board that I put together for a Challenge over at A Cherry On Top for our Winter Crop (which is going on now!!)

TFL! 🙂

Jasmine and Shelby Layouts

Good morning everyone!

On Valentine’s Day, one of the ladies on ACOT threw us a Valentine’s Day Party filled with challenges, games, etc. The Challenges are due tomorrow, so I got to work on them over the weekend. I managed to use alot of red, pink and HEARTS!

I Love Sushi. Papers are Basic Grey; Embellies are Jolee’s; alphas are Bo Bunny; enamel dots are Freckled Fawn. Everything else is from my stash.

Loved. As I was finding papers for the layout above, I stumbled across a paper with all these hearts. I thought to myself: I’ll fussy cut those out, ink them and put them in a grid format, surrounding my photo. Look at that sweet face. I love my Shelby! ❤ ❤ Again, the papers are Basic Grey; stickers are from Simple Stories. Twine is from my stash.

I Love My Dog. Another layout featuring Shelby. This layout was based on a sketch (see below). I used DCWV “Paw Prints” pattern paper; Bazzill cardstock; KaiserCraft circle stickers. Washi tape and title are from my stash.

Easter’s On Its Way! Everything is “Welcome Easter” by Echo Park. All I have left is one and half sheets of solid papers and half of the sticker sheet.

TFL! 🙂
